I have a list a mile long and a day that’s a mere 24 hours. Each day I transfer my list over to the next. A few things get done in between the “must’s” but most of my list just keeps moving forward like a lumbering dinosaur looking for his next snack.
Since I am a coach, I ask myself all the right questions. What am I doing to create this? How would I like it to be? What is in alignment with my values? And when I honestly look at the list, I don’t see anything that I can drop out right now.
But what I do see is the opportunity to change the way I look at my list. Instead of thinking “how will I get all this done,” I can be asking, “what can I do right now?” What do I have time for and what kind of small step can I take to move forward in any of these projects?
Life is really moving the ball down the field ( to use a football analogy and I don’t know the first thing about football) little by little each day, week and year. The importance of life is enjoying the journey down the field, complete with some head-knocking, intercepted passes and inspiring huddles.
So, what can I do today to get that ball closer to the goal? Whatever it is, once I do it, I’ll celebrate with a really good half-time show and a nice cold beer.
